“I Choose Not to Run”-Jerry Seinfeld

You may recall a story I have told you before about how I “run marathons.” In 2015, as my husband and I sat on the edge of my new bed at the hospital (where I would remain for the next 35 days), we were in complete shock. The news of my Leukemia diagnosis was stillContinue reading ““I Choose Not to Run”-Jerry Seinfeld”

How important is it?

One of my favorite things about my 12 Step Recovery group is that it gives me slogans to live by that can be recalled readily for any given situation. If you aren’t part of one, you should know that one probably exists to help you with whatever you are dealing with; struggles with being aContinue reading “How important is it?”

How’s hurried and harried Heather?

Since we connected last, I am proud to say that I have mastered the 4 areas (as outlined by John Mark Comer) required to “ruthlessly eliminate hurry” from my life. Granted, I was in Myrtle Beach when I wrote my last entry, came home for one day and flew out to Malibu, California to seeContinue reading “How’s hurried and harried Heather?”

Image-Dragons

I am going to try to make this short and sweet. By now you know that my attention span is limited during regular life, but right now I am on vacation, making me extra focus-challenged. But I can’t seem to stop thinking about an experience I had last week and want to share it withContinue reading “Image-Dragons”

“That Sinking Feeling…”

It’s that sinking feeling. One similar to those crazy dreams I sometimes have, where I go to a math class and am handed a test that I forgot to study for (and in some cases, forgot to ever go to the class at all!). Or maybe like a bride who meant to shed those lastContinue reading ““That Sinking Feeling…””

“Seatbelts Everyone”

I am going to do my best to give you an accurate mental picture of what I am going to write about this morning. I wish wish wish I had an actual picture, because it would be definitely be something you would want to hang on your wall (for occasional comic relief). I’ll do my bestContinue reading ““Seatbelts Everyone””

“Life Is”

“Life is Good”? Try “Life is boring”, “Life is Hard”, Life is Dull”. Now, wouldn’t those make good slogans for a t-shirt line? Maybe it’s because I am coming down from the thrill of being in Paris for a week, but I feel bored and tired and disinterested in my everyday life. I realize IContinue reading ““Life Is””

Lost and Found (part 2)

Well, it happened. My worst fear came true as soon as I reached Paris: we got lost. We had to take two different trains to reach our hotel which was about an hour and a half from the airport. After finally purchasing our train passes (post-13 hours of travel and remember, those people in FranceContinue reading “Lost and Found (part 2)”

Life On Life’s Terms

When I was 18 I followed a boy from my home in Napa, California to go to school in Joplin, Missouri. That last sentence might confirm in you what you have been suspecting all along; Heather is nuts. I looked it up this morning and that is a distance of exactly 1,865 miles. Not onlyContinue reading “Life On Life’s Terms”

Keeping It Simple…(a.k.a. Strawberry Fruit Snack)

I was at the dentist yesterday. I have mentioned before how amazing my “Dental Spa” is. Besides having amazing attitudes about a not-so-fun job, they go the extra mile when dealing with a frightened child who has anxiety about having dental work done (and in this case, I am not talking about myself…). Apparently, theContinue reading “Keeping It Simple…(a.k.a. Strawberry Fruit Snack)”
